Biorefinery of the future

Together with our partner company GIS Recycling, we have developed a concept for tomorrow’s biorefinery.

This involves adding additional functions to a classic biogas plant in order to exploit its full potential.

Biogas as the basis

Biogas plants are used, among other things, in waste management to produce biogas and compost from green waste and biomass through dry fermentation.

The process is a time-tested and sustainable method of producing energy in the form of biogas.

Heat is required for fermentation, which usually creates a huge energy demand.


Dry fermentation of biomass produces biogas. This consists of 55% methane (CH4) and 45% CO2. The gas can be used, for example, to generate electrical energy by means of a turbine.


The digestate from dry fermentation is turned into compost by rotting. This compost can then be reused in the form of potting soil.

Recycling 2.0

We use our plasma technology to increase the efficiency of biogas plants and turn them into true biorefineries. This enables the additional production of the following valuable materials:

The biorefinery of the future

We extend biogas plants with a plasma device, which allows to develop the full potential of the plant and to upgrade it to a real biorefinery.

Feedstocks for this process are biomass, e.g. from organic waste, tree & green cuttings, and electrical energy. We are relying here on electric power from renewable sources.

Black Carbon & Energy

Dry fermentation of biomass produces biogas. This is broken down into its components CO2 and methane by means of gas purification. The CO2 can then be used technically and thus represents added value.

The methane produced is further decomposed by means of plasma, resulting in pure carbon. Compression of this carbon now produces high-quality vegetable carbon.

This is a sought-after commodity in industry and can be used, for example, to improve soil or to produce tire rubber or the like.

Plasma decomposition also produces additional heat energy that can be used to support the dry fermentation cycle.


Decomposition of the dry fermentation residues produces humus-rich compost. This is a sustainable source of nutrients for soils and plants and helps maintain soil structure and water retention.

The compost can I further distributed in the form of potting soil.

Farm manure

Percolate is produced as a byproduct of dry fermentation. Similar to our agricultural solution,

we use ANL to enrich the percolate, making it storable and odorless. This process also prevents the formation of ammonia.

The resulting end product is a high-quality organic farm fertilizer that is an excellent and ecological alternative to mineral fertilizers.
